The fish at this family friendly, old time, amazingly clean restaurant/store is excellent. their poor-boys (shrimp) was better than I have had in Florida and Boston. The hush-puppies are fantastic, along with their shrimp and fish chips. They are located in the Portage park area...More

Hagen's Fish Market has been a neighborhood staple since 1946 and is one of the last surviving natural hardwood smokehouses in Chicago. Though only carry-out, Hagen's Fish Market attracts customers from everywhere. Besides the typical fried shrimp (three types), scallops and fish chips, they offer...More

I have been coming here for over 35 years. The food is great. Especially the fried shrimp and fish chips. They are fast but can get very crowded especially during Lent.

Excellent fried fish for lunch! Not too greasy. It also has nice shrimp platters for holiday (it gets busy) and wonderful frozen stuff if you want to try something new - mussels, stuffed crab

Has a vast assortment of fried, smoked, broiled fish. Been going here for 30 years, and never gotten a bad order. Great breading on fried food, seafood salad is awesome, food is a little pricy, but so worth it.

Really surprised how much I enjoyed this restaurant It is a fish market where they fry the fresh fish for you. May be the best po boy sandwich I ever had. No seating but a really great option for take out.

Large selection of fresh, frozen, and smoked fish. A Chicago tradition. Open late. Try the deep friend shrimp for a late night snack. Plenty of parking in the lot. Busy around the holidays though.

If you love fried shrimp, this is the place to go. You order by weight, and they fry them while you wait (about 2minutes). Order cocktail sauce. Their served up in a waxed type bag and there are 2 picnic tables outside if you want...More
